Women Talk Climate

Women are distinctly powerful environmentalists. As artists, educators, scientists, moms, and more, women are bringing their whole selves to create the transformative climate action we need.
In 2018, Washington Women for Climate Action Now dispatched a team to document the stories of women who are leading the way in their communities. These are a few of their stories.

Director Statement

I set out to ask women climate leaders in my home state of Washington a few simple questions-- What impacts of climate change are you seeing? What climate actions are you taking? What is your vision? These are their stories, in their own voices.

If this short film has inspired you, that is everything I aimed for. The good news is we have more interview footage already and would love to turn this into a full length documentary or a mini-series of videos. Please give generously to Washington Women for Climate Action Now so we can expand this project and women can continue driving climate action in our Evergreen State.
